Question about 1992 Buick Park Avenue
Sometimes the sensors get out of alignment (I think) and the trunk won't close. Is there a way I can get this problem straightened out without taking it to the shop?
If you slam it closed (or someone else has), it will bend the bracket down so that the closing actuator will not engage nor will the latch. Check to see if its bent down. I had to take mine off and straighten it, as well as using new bolts and washers. then it worked fine.

Check it out!.....On the bottom portion of the latch where deck lid meets the "male portion of the latch....you will see a black, square "flap" of sorts. With one finger, lift up on this flap. Upon doing so, the electric motor will raise receiver back into position, allowing deck lid to be drawn down as it is supposed to.
If, however the system has been damaged, it may be necessary to repair/replace parts before normal operation can resume.
